Gospel Music Icon, Carman Passes Away

GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame Member, CARMAN, Iconic CCM Trailblazer, Dies at Las Vegas Hospital 

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (February 16, 2021) - GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame member, CARMAN, passed away Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at a Las Vegas, Nevada hospital, after fighting a series of complications resulting from surgery to repair a hiatal hernia.  

Carman Dominic Licciardello, known to fans worldwide as “Carman,” was 65. 

Born January 19, 1956 in Trenton, New Jersey, Carman began his musical career playing drums in his mother’s band at the age of 15. Carman holds the world record for having the largest audience to see a single Christian artist. He set the record for the largest concert at Texas Stadium with more than 71,000 fans and led more than 80,000 fans in worship in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 

Among his many awards, Carman received the House of Hope of Humanitarian Award for his positive influence in the lives of American youth in 2006, other noted recipients of this award include Ronald & Nancy Reagan and Billy Graham. The Gospel Music Association honored Carman with induction into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2018. Billboard named Carman “Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year” in 1992 and 1995, and in 1993, his album, Addicted to Jesus, earned the distinction of Contemporary Christian Album of the Year. Carman was Grammy-nominated multiple times as the Best Pop Contemporary Gospel Artist. His recording, “A Long Time Ago in a Land Called Bethlehem” was nominated for “Album of the Year” by the Recording Academy in 1986. 

In 1985, the release of his first #1 song, "The Champion," solidified his place in music history and defined his soul-winning career as one of endurance, grit, dedication, and pure talent. Anyone who knew Carman knows that he counted only this as his greatest lifetime achievement – winning millions of souls to Christ. 

Matt Felts, Carman's manager, states: "When Carman resumed touring again a few years ago, he was concerned that no one would care that he was back. He was wrong. Every night fans packed out venues and his ministry was as powerful as it ever was. This world has lost a light in the darkness but today Carman saw first hand the fruit of his labors. 

Carman was planning to embark on a 60-city tour later this month.

    This truly breaks my heart. Many of my teen years were spent listening to Carman and going to his concerts...And meeting him in 1985 was such a wonderful experience. He was a true man of God and this world has lost a champion for Christ! But I rejoice, for he is now face to face with his savior and there is no better place to be.

    October 20, 1992 - Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA - You gave an alter call at the end of your concert and I answered that call. I gave my life to Jesus at your concert. I have been a fan of yours before and since then. I thank you for answering the call God put on your life. Now, your work here is done. You fought one awesome fight. You have run your course, and it's time to go Home. Your life has now just begun. God bless you and have fun doing that Holy Ghost Hop up there.

    Carman was always one of my favorite artists growing up. His RIOT tour was my first concert. As I grew older, the messages in his music always continued to minister to me and helped to build my faith. My family was fortunate to be able to meet Carman last October when he came to Lincoln, IL. It blessed my spirit to see that he asked nothing for himself, but wanted to help children. What a legacy all the way around! Prayers for his family.

    You will be greatly missed! You made such an impact on my life in my early christian walk with Christ. No one was doing music productions like you! They were breath-taking - lights, camera, action, dancers, actors, it truly was a unique musical production and a true message of love, mercy and salvation in every song! No one like you and there never will be. You touched lives all over the world. Take your rest until that great day. You will truly be missed but you left a massive legacy! Gone but never forgotten x

    Growing up in a Christian household Carmen was always playing. I had a lot of his cd’s and I played them none stop, with songs like “Jesus is the lamb” and “Great God” they filled my spirit with joy. As a young child I looked up to Carmen and always wanted to hear more of his music as I felt the Lord through his songs. Now as an 18 year old, Carmen will be remembered in my family forever. He’s finally with the Lord and I’m sure their having the biggest celebration in heaven.

    We went to every one of his concerts that we could as kids. I can still remember when The Champion came out. Carman was one of a kind and did such an amazing job for the Lord. His song I Will Serve the Lord has continually played in my head over the years. Such a powerful message that is so needed today. People really do need to draw that line in the sand and serve the Lord-completely! How different our world would be....that's how Carman lived. And now he has finished the race, and is in heaven, along with my dear brother. Well done, good and faithful servant. You were so loved!

    There’s no replacing of man of God like this. I can’t imagine how many Thousand of crowns he will be laying at the feet of Jesus. The millions he touched by his concerts and the thousands that were saved by his ministry. Carmen touched my life in 1993 and put on my heart to start a jazzed up Bible after school program in the public schools. This lasted over 10 years and thousands of kids came to know Christ through Carmen‘s music ministry. He change my life and showed my kids how was cool to love Jesus. I will never forget him and he is truly one of the all-time spirit filled evangelist and performers of the gospel of all time. Loved him dearly.

    My 40-year-old daughter and I were texting today about how much Carman meant to our lives. How many Christian artists span the generations like he did?! He was a trailblazer as a singer, preacher, rapper, evangelist, and concert artist. He brought spiritual warfare front and center when many Christians didn't even know they were in a fight. Well done, good and faithful servant! We'll miss you.

    saw Carman in concert first time at 1994 Creation Festival. Not biggest fan of the music, but there was no denying his heart for Jesus and his total committment to his ministry EVER. Heart is what comes closest to Jesus when we let Him into our lives, and Carman now has his reward. God job faithful servant, and thank YOU for letting Him into your life completely. You will be missed, but NOTHING OF THIS WORLD can lessen your work for Him in our lives.

    Carman was part of the soundtrack of my life growing up. I’ve been reading the comments on social media posts telling of his passing all day long. Over and over again I see people sharing that they got saved at one of his shows in 1989. Or 91. Or 94, and so on and so on. So many souls who have a relationship with Jesus Christ to this day, thanks to Carman’s music. What an incredible legacy. Carman was bought by the blood of Jesus, and is in heaven today. If you’re reading this, take the time to think about your soul. When your time comes. Will you be ready? If you’re not sure, start here. A) admit you are a sinner and have made mistakes B) believe that Jesus is God’s only son, that He died on the cross for your sins, and rose from the grave on the 3rd day. C) Confess Jesus as the Son of God, and commit yourself to following Him. (Romans 3:23, John 1:12, Romans 10:9. Thanks for being a living example, Carman.

    In some very tough times, his music helped me through so much, “ I feel Jesus’, got me through a lot, Heart of a Champion is the song I walk to, God in America is shared with many because America needs God! I never got to see him in concert and it was my prayer that if you had to come back to her that I would make a way to have seen him because he is truly an inspiration, His music brought so much Home to the youth . and to many people in this world. I hope someone does see televised tribute to his life and his music, I believe that Carmen’s ministry has reached millions of people and in today’s world, our youth still needs to hear his message of hope, his ministry has touched and brought so many to know Jesus, My heart and prayers go out to his family.

    Carman was a legend; he brought the gospel to life! I spent my teen and young adult years listening to him and sharing his videos with others even inviting some kids over to watch his presentation of Halloween 3:16 on TBN. Carman was a blessing and showed Christian young people that we can worship the Lord and have fun doing it. His music encouraged me to stand for Christ and for righteousness and know that there are other young people who love Jesus and are living for him. I am sharing his music with my children and I know his legacy lives on. I know Carman is hearing "well done, my good and faithful servant". My prayers are with Carman's family during this time; may the Lord give you His peace that passes all understanding.

    I was taken when I found out about Carmens passing. We all know absent from the body present with the Lord. I first saw one of his concerts at the Del Mar Fair with my daughter right after my husband passed. Than she took me to a concert in San Diego, than I went to another in San Diego. I enjoyed them and they were always dynamic. I am a retired teacher now. After Mrs Crouch passed I saw on she gave him money to get help when he had cancer .That is when I started to pray for him on facebook and became one of his prayer warriors. He talk about getting it again and I told him not to keep doing the Chemo. I stop checking his blog when he got married and I got several cancers back, this time lymphoma. I have been sort of out of it. and sorry I wasn't praying for him. He was an amazing man always wanting to go back and do another concert and minister to young people. I believe the Lord took his servant home with a great home coming as he was still suffering. The Lord is a merciful God and doesn't give us more than we can handle. He has a great testimony and He has done his best during his suffering. I have been a Christian for most of my life and went to the mission field with my Uncle and Aunt when I was just out of High School. Worked in several Christian High Schools and done minor Christian work. IN the end we will all be together worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ. Just like Billy Graham he will have his name etched in a stone for the salvation of a many people. I know people that have an out of body experience don't want to come back unless they have a special mission they didn't complete. May Carmen RIP.

    What an honor it was to work for you at the record company back in the 1990s. Truly, a privilege to be a part of such a strong man of God's ministry and impacting millions for Christ. Praying more strong men of God are raised up and willing to stand on the Word like Carman always did. He certainly finished the race well, and boy, will he be missed. Still reeling from the news but I KNOW there were thousands waiting in heaven for you to come so they could personally say, "Thank you!" Love you brother and my sincerest, THANK YOU!"

    I was blessed tremendously by our dear brother Carmen as a musical artist. I watched him on TBN at the start of his career. Back when Paul & Jan Crouch was alive and beyond. I was a young mom and wife with a career and children. Unfortunately, I never got to go to his concerts, which I heard were wonderful & powerful! I am saddened to hear he has passed away. There were days that I was not happy to be able to focus and write music and perform even with so many responsibilities. Jesus was the center of it all for Carmen. When I would hear Carmen and his music ministry, it would get me up and I'd be encouraged again to do what God put inside me to do. One day we will see him in the presence of Yeshua, but he will be missed here. He was a beautiful man of God. I felt like he was my brother. I am praying for his family now. God is a very present help in time of need. Stay strong in Jesus's name.

One day we will see him in the presence of Yeshua, but he will be missed here. He was a beautiful man of God. I felt like he was my brother. I am praying for his family now. God is a very present help in time of need. Stay strong in Jesus's name.
